Spring has officially sprung, and if you've ever thought about putting solar panels on your roof, now might be the perfect time to do it!
GASP is excited to be teaming up with the nonprofit group Solar United Neighbors (SUN) to bring you the Allegheny County Solar and EV Charger Co-op — a free group to help you go solar.
"Now more than ever people are looking for opportunities to live more sustainable lives by making household changes like installing solar,” GASP Executive Director Patrick Campbell said. “GASP looks forward to working with the co-op to help our neighbors better understand and navigate home solar issues and can't wait to get started."
Here's how it works:
The solar co-op will help area homeowners and small business owners learn about solar together and purchase solar panels at a group rate from a single installer.
Together, co-op members will learn about solar energy and leverage their numbers to get competitive pricing and quality solar installations. After a competitive bidding process facilitated by SUN, a group of volunteers from the co-op will select a solar company to complete the co-op's installations.
Rest assured, joining a co-op does not obligate members to purchase solar or chargers. Instead, each member will have the option to individually purchase panels and electric vehicle chargers based on the installer's group rate.
LEARN MORE: Join us for a Solar 101 at 6:30 p.m. THIS Thursday, April 6 on Zoom. The solar experts at SUN will walk you through solar technology, economics, incentives, and how the co-op works. Register here.
GASP will be there - we hope to see you there, too!
